Google Places Reviews:
If I could only give one piece of advice for a local business owner about getting good exposure on Google, it would be:
Get as many reviews as possible for your Google places listing. It does so much good in so many ways.
First it’s going to help your rankings. Second its going to help your reputation, and those two things will lead to more sales.
Send each client or customer an email which includes your Google places URL. Give basic instructions on how they write a review once they get to your Google listing. Thins like where to click, and how to set up a Google account if they don’t have one.
You can also suggest they review you on other sites using the same methodology. Yahoo, Insider Pages, and yelp are all great sites to get reviews on, and Google places may pick them up.
Make a plane today. Ask for one review a day. Get ranked!
